I’ve seen this video before, but I’ve never posted it here… and the message is powerful, so if you haven’t seen it before, you should. Feel free to pass it along to anyone on your faculty that thinks it’s not important for students to learn how to use technology in their classes.
Of particular interest to us in education:
“The amount of new technical information is doubling every 2 years. For students starting a four-year technical or college degree, this means that…
half of what they learn in their first year of study will be outdated by their third year of study.”
There is also a more visual version of this presentation (same presentation, different music & graphics):
